Description:

IRS Scam; A recorded message supposedly from the Internal Revenue Service and threatening a law suit.; Answered call told I needed to call a # that I was being sued by the IRS. Called the number back and it was disconnected.; left a message with a different call back number about being sued by IRS.; This # claims it is the IRS & I need to call a certain #; automated call saying the IRS was taking legal action against me and I needed to dispute by calling a different numb er and providing my info. I called the IRS and have no issues. I back traced this number and found that it was in fact a scam.; Caller ID’d himself as a windows tec wanting ti help me with my computer?!!; Richard7/24/2014 I am on holiday in FRANCE Male caller with an Indian accent could hear the call center in the background. He stated he was from Microsoft Windows and I had a problem with my Windows computer. He simply wanted access to my computer in order to defraud me of money by blackmailing me for release of the machine or stealing banking or other data from it. This was a known (and repeated) international scam. It was the third call in a fortnight (one routed through Kazakhstan and two through the US. I reported it to the police (again) and was told that these ‘scammers’ sell phone numbers onto other ‘scammers’ to try their luck. Apparently they buy or rent blocks of phone numbers to hide their identities and locations (but the accents give them away). I am told that if someone is dumb enough to buy into their story and access is given to their Windows based computer they will lose all private data and be locked out. Then they will only release the machine back to you for a payment. I informed the caller I knew thanked them for the phone number details I was passing it onto the fraud department of the police at which point he became very abusive . The one routed through Kazakhstan threatened to blow me up (which momentarily upset my wife) as explained to the police. Provided numbers are passed onto crime intelligence at least they will have an opportunity to turn off the block of landline numbers and maybe prevent someone being robbed of their hard earned money or intimidated by these crooks.; I am on holiday in FRANCE Male caller Indian call center accent Stated he was from Windows Service Center Wanted access to my ‘Windows’ computer Repeated international scam – I reported it to the police (again) If someone is dumb enough to buy into their story and access is given to and you have a Windows based computer you will lose all private data and be locked out. Then they will only release the machine back to you. Told the caller I knew thanked them for the phone number details I was passing it onto the fraud department of the police at which point he became very very abusive and told me to have sex in another country insert my phone into an orifice that is not designed to take it. Provided numbers are passed onto crime intelligence at least they have an opportunity to turn off the block of landline numbers and maybe prevent someone being robbed of their hard earned money.; female caller sounded foreign and in some sort of call center — I couldn’t understand what she was saying due to background noise on her end and I hung up. They called in on one of my publicly advertised business #s.

Description:

Definitely a scam. This number should be disconnected if it connects oversees or the person who owns it should be arrested.; This guy has a heavy Indian accent and insists he is working for Microsoft and my machine has been generating errors. He got my 89 year old father-in-law to load software onto his machine before my father-in-law became suspicious and gave my phone number to follow up. A few days later I get the call while I am rebuilding my father-in-law’s machine. He starts off by telling me he spoke to me before. When I challenged that he moved right on to telling me the machine is sending errors. It could not have since it has been unplugged since the malware was originally installed. The software puts a run icon in the tray and allows remote access takeover of the machine. I believe this guy should be investigated.This guy has a heavy Indian accent and insists he is working for Microsoft and my machine has been generating errors.
